4 stars Oh man, absolutely beautiful Pink Floyd work. This is some of the best music I have ever heard. I absolutely love all the atmospherics on this album, and every single track here has a different one. Wonderful, just wonderful.

First off, both of the Shine on you Crazy Diamond tracks are two of the most beautiful pieces of music ever recorded. It goes from beautiful synthesizer background atmospherics to a slow jazz-influenced guitar groove. And all of it is stunning. This track alone is worth getting this album.

While SOYCD was beautiful,Welcome to the Machine is dark an haunting. On this track, Pink Floyd experiments with different synthesizer sounds and atmospheres. This song would be great if they had just trimmed the length on this one down a bit. The fact that it goes on too long is the only reason that this isn't a 5 star album.

Have a Cigar is the song where the standard instruments all come together to make a rock song on the album. It's a funky piece, and the rhythms are perfect for the mood. The synthesizers are also killer, and it ends on a really cool solo.

Wish You Were Here is a great acoustic ballad. It's a wonderful song, and the vocals and the guitar evoke a great down to earth sound. Another five star song.

Again, this album is definetely a good one to get. I would reccomend it to any fan of prog rock, especially the ones who appreciate a good atmosphere.
